Green thanks

Wanstead & Woodford Guardian Letters, 12 June 2014

Dear Sir

On behalf of my colleagues and myself I would like to thank all those electors in Redbridge who voted for The Green Party, at the recent Council and European elections.

Contrary to the thoughts of some, a vote for The Greens is not wasted. By voting for us you send a clear message to the other parties about your deepest concerns. In turn these parties are aware that the votes in contention can be the difference between them winning or losing elections and are stirred to act.

Furthermore – besides having many councillors nationwide, two members on the GLA at City Hall, an MP in the Commons and a peer in The House of Lords at Westminster – we now have three representatives in The European Parliament. This, no matter what people may think of some of the ‘shenanigans’ in Brussels, can only bode well for the future.

In view of this we look forward to having your continuing support, in order that we may further enhance our political profile.

Yours sincerely

Ashley Gunstock
Lead Speaker
Green Party
